Just a Public Service Announcement for all of the bridesmaids out there who are putting together bridal shower invitations… don’t forget to add in where the bride is registered!! I spent the whole day yesterday printing invitations, rounding the corners, sticking on little crystal accents, hand-writing all of the addresses and return address… the whole nine. Those puppies are signed and sealed and going out to the post office today.
And I forgot to put in where the bride is registered. I didn’t put it on the invitation as I was going to print up cards…. I apparently forgot all about that as it was my absolute first thought this morning. Now what??? I guess I’ll have to let each person know as they RSVP, right? I can’t order more envelopes and more stamps at this point, they need to go out so people can get it on their calendars….
I am an idiot.

It is perfectly fine to put the registry information on the shower invite – a shower is a party where you are supposed to bring a gift – traditionally the whole point of the shower was to set the bride up with the things she needed to keep her new house!
However, I think you’ll find that you don’t have to do anything. Most people can figure out registry information by looking online – as long as your bride has stuck with the usual suspects. Otherwise, people will call and ask. And it sounds like you’ve asked them to RSVP by telephone? In that case, they have the perfect opportunity to ask.
I’m sure it will turn out just fine; don’t worry. People manage to figure out wedding registry information without anything on the invitation; this isn’t that different.

I would have never have thought to even put it in the invite anyway. I would just let them know when the RSVP. Word of mouth will get out if the all know each other.

Thanks for all of the responses! I feel much better now – and you are all right. I’ll just mention it when they RSVP! Thanks, hive 🙂

Is the bride registered at major stores that Weddingchannel.com and theknot would include in their registries? If so, it is possible that most of your guests already know where she is registered, and the others can ask their friends (or you). I don’t think this is as much of an issue as it was back when people had to physically visit stores to see registries.

I agree with word of mouth and also sending out an evite/email.
It’s ok..everybody makes a goof now and then..gosh I wonder what mine will be?

I wouldn’t worry. I’m sure word will get around or they’ll call and ask you. You should post some pics of the invites. They sound really nice.

Not a big deal! Honestly, I think most people are internet savy enough to search the big sites for registry info. Girls are almost always registered at either Target, Bed Bath & Beyond or a major department store.
One of my bridesmaids is throwing a shower and forgot to put that it was a shower on the invitation let alone registry information.
